This book presents doctoral supervision as a task involving both academic and spiritual formation. It meets the need for a handbook that deals with supervision from the perspective of the supervisor who is an evangelical Christian and who teaches in an evangelical theological institution, although the principles set out here will also be of help to evangelical supervisors who work in a secular environment.

Editorial Reviews

I consider this handbook to be quite outstanding . . . I greatly appreciate the emphasis Ian Shaw places on spiritual formation and pastoral care. He faces up to evangelical challenges and offers solid and creative suggestions. The case studies and the questions are excellent. I commend this enthusiastically.Ian RandallSenior Research Fellow, International Baptist Theological Study Centre, AmsterdamI am delighted to see this text! It will be very, very helpful right across the Majority World and also useful for many supervisors in the West. I kept thinking back to my own time as a PhD student in Cambridge and how different things were then! . . . The integration of the evangelical, spiritual, pastoral, and ethical dimensions in with the academic, practical and technical ones, works very well. This is a good "Christian" read, as well as a good "academic" handbook.Christopher J. H. WrightInternational Ministry Director, Langham PartnershipEverything you need to know about doctoral supervision is in this handbook! It is both scholarly and practical, with emphasis on the holistic formation of evangelical scholars. This comprehensive guide is a valuable gift to global theological education.Theresa Roco LuaSecretary of Accreditation and Educational Development, Asia Theological Association Dean, Asia Graduate School of Theology, Philippines
